Informative server great place and view! Worth the price :-)
Our waiter gave very poor service. Dropped my silverware on the floor, no apology. Missed drinks, no return to table for twenty minutes at a time. Good food poor service
We went there to celebrate our 47 th anniversary. Thought it was closer to the water, but we had a nice window table. Food was good, but pricey. Waiter said we MUST have a dessert for our anniversary. We usually never order dessert. We ordered a dessert and were surprisingly charged $18. If not for the dessert I might try this restaurant again!
Went for Father`s Day Pre- Fix menu . For $65 pp meal was just an average , nothing special .
Had visited before with a big party and regular menu . They do not allow reservations for big parties any more , everything pre-fixed after 9 people I believe. Not my personal preference. Used to be better when just opened. Now due to prime spot in LIC overpriced for not such a good food .
Good food but unprofessional service for the price we paid. If you’re going to add on a 20% tip and ask for gratuity on top of that, the service needs to be top notch. We had to ask multiple times for our drinks and the check.
Overall it was great. Service was a little off but maybe understandable because it was Father’s Day. Will definitely be back.
Father’s Day price fixe menu was well rounded with choices to satisfy many tastes. The food is reliably great every time. The handcrafted drinks were superb. I really enjoyed the Barrata with fig appetizer.
Food and location were great.
I still don’t know who my waiter was. Very inattentive service. Due to their price point I believe the service should have been spot on.
The food was pretty good no complaints there.
However, for the price I expected much better service. They cancelled my reservation earlier that afternoon and didn’t bother to tell me so even though I had reservations for 8:15 pm we didn’t sit down until 9pm.
Then I had asked the hostess and the waiter to help me celebrate my girlfriends bday by bringing a little candle with our desert (felt it’s a reasonable request if I’m spending $500 on a dinner for 4) and they completely forgot or disregarded it. When I told the waiter that he forgot (obviously ruining the surprise) he just looked at me dumbfounded and confused as to why it was a big deal. Tried to complain to management, but all I got was sorry maybe next time...
I had a good time with my friends, food and service were both very good. Cheese plate has great value even if selection is limited. It was technically a bithday dinner but we didnt want to make a fuss or give the staff more work to do, however our server was attentive and must have overheard my friend wishing me a happy birthday because he brought out our dessert with a candle and had a few staff come sing anyway. I was pleasantly surprised. A good time was had by all.
We went for my birthday and it was really just ok or good. The appetizers were very disappointing. The octopus was awful and the salad was just okay.. The water was awful and we had to order bottled water. The meat and cheese platter was excellent. As for the main dishes; the duck was over cooked, the Chicken Parmagian was not great, the Bronzino and Sole were very good.
All and all is was not great. The highlight of the evening was sitting outside and the company.
Beautiful, trendy restaurant. The food was very good but for the prices I would have expected better. My grilled salmon was a little dry. Husband ordered the veal parm which he enjoyed very much. Waiter service was attentive. Nice space for special occasions.
The waiter spoke very ghetto for a romantic setting I found that very off putting
One of my favorites ♥️
DISAPPOINTING THE SERVICE LEVEL JUST KEEPS GETTING WORSE.EACH PERSON FOOD COMES OUT 10 MINS LATTER. FOOD COMES COLD.
We loved it
Fabulous pork chops.!
Quality food prepped by a quality Chef
Food is delicious regardless of what you order. Service is attentive and professional. A beautiful setting. A real gem for a nice night out. Highly recommend it!
The food was, as always, delicious. Our waiter was quite pleasant and efficient except when he wasn't distracted. We'll be going back again soon.
Fun lively atmosphere with great food!
Service was great too!
Our experience was horrible!When I made the reservation I requested a window table,unfortunately the table we got was like an after thought pushed in the middle of the door leading to the outside seating!we were seated by the GM Michael Martikainen,and I said to him I DON’T like this table,his response was I requested window table,which was clearly no where near a window!he went on to say he could move the cooking table and put the table there,I was very appalled by that!we sat down for over 20 minutes before someone finally asked us if we needed some bread!the table wasn’t set properly,missing plates and utensils all the other tables had lighted candles except for our table;I had to ask for one.Throughout our entire meal no one came to our table to asked how’s everything going,how’s the food etc NOTHING!the only person I’m giving credit to is our waiter Robert!I will never dine there again or recommend anyone!
Go with the waiter's recommendation. Otherwise, we would have missed the excellent melanzane. The wine was top notch and reasonable and served in an unusually lovely glass The bread was unique and delicious. Don't miss the desserts!
We sat outside on the patio and it was a nice quiet oasis. It was a pleasant commute from Astoria (where we live). We took the F from Steinway to Court Square (weekend schedule) and it was about a 15 minute walk from Court Square station. Highly recommend the grilled calamari as an appetizer and chicken parm as the entree! Cocktails are amazing too!
Best Italian restaurant in LIC!
Our dining experience was very pleasant....food was quite good ...nice ambience and the excellent on point service from our waiter Robert made for a most enjoyable evening.
Everything was great. The food was really good and the services better than good. Thanks to Mr. Angel for all the great services and hospitality. I will be back!😉
Food and service were excellent, plus the chef came to the
table and made a pasta dish in front of us, very impressive
Great service. Great food. Great Bartenders.
Love this place - it's a little pricey, but appropriate for special occasions. We went for my husband's birthday and the only issue was the entrées weren't very hot when they came out.
We had a family dinner at Maiella and loved the food, service and decor!
The best restaurant in the area. Hands down
Usually very good restaurants in this neighborhood and expected far more. I was extremely disappointed with the food. It was good but but nothing out of the ordinary. The staff was wonderful wish the food was the same.
Ambiance and décor makes for nice, upscale setting. Nice wine selection, and all entrees and appetizers were fresh and flavorful. Great place for a family dinner, plenty of space.
The waiter forgot to tell us there was a Nutella pizza for dessert and it looked yummy at the next table...
Always a wonderful meal!!
Had the nicest server, Armando...
Loved our meal at Maiella! The grilled calamari on skewers was out of this world delicious and the fettucini Maiella (in cheese wheel) was so, so special. Veal chop parm and branzino were equally terrific. Service was attentive. Only downside was extremely long wait for valet to pull our car up despite giving the requisite 15-minute notice.
Great ambiance. Staff was excellent! It's quite noisy so maybe not the best place for a quiet date night. Food was awesome! They have an outdoor seating area but it was raining when we were there. Definitely going back!
Excellent atmosphere & the food is delicious! Great wine selection! For dessert order the meringue cake it will not disappoint -
Food and service was exceptional. Homemade pasta like you would get in Italy . Very noisy good for smaller groups . There’s only one thing I think they should change and that’s the bread . Not very exciting or good . But maybe that’s a good thing , it leaves more room for the delicious food .
This was our third time back at Maiella. The service is always great . However, we noticed that the signature fetuccine was not as tasty as the previous times.( not consistent with the flavor) Everything else was well received. The lamb, steak and the starters were fresh and cooked perfect. We will definitely continue to come and welcome others to try it.
